Cancelations due to COVID-19

By now, we are all aware of how difficult it is to make plans under the current concerns for everyone’s health due to the COVID-19 virus. With that in mind (and adhering to the shelter at home orders we all need to follow to help ensure the health of our communities), Bell Road Barn Players are officially canceling the auditions for our upcoming summer shows, The Comedy of Errors and The Foreigner. We are sad to make this announcement, but know that it is the right thing to do. Depending on when we are given the all-clear from our government officials, we may be able to hold auditions for The Comedy of Errors in May. So, for our actors out there, we hope to offer you more roles in the summer than the rolls you can currently find at the grocery store. We will keep you posted.

As you may know, we had to put our recent, truly wonderful, production of Men on Boats ashore due to COVID-19. In fact, we were in the . . . same boat . . . as all the other theatres across the country. In hopes to get the production of Men On Boats afloat again, we have decided to cancel our summer production of The Foreigner. This way, if things are swimming along, Men on Boats can drop anchor on stage early this summer. The cast and crew really put something special together with Men on Boats and we don’t want you to miss it!

Season ticket holders should expect to be contacted by a board member within the next week regarding their season passes and options we have for them.  

As always if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach out to us on Facebook, our website or email us at

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the theatre soon.


Due to increased public health concerns and after careful consideration, we have decided to postpone our performances of Men On Boats, for the next two weekends. After consulting with our valued partner, Park University, we feel that this is the best decision for the safety of our patrons, cast and crew members. A college campus involves a lot of people in close quarters, and with current health concerns, public safety is everyone’s first priority. We hope that we will be able to reschedule soon. If you have already purchased tickets to Men On Boats, a Bell Road board member will be in contact with you to discuss if you would like a refund or exchange for a future production. We are heartbroken for our hard-working cast and crew, but we are optimistic that performances will be able to happen at a later date. 


We are so very excited to bring to you this fun and truly creative piece of theatre! Led by an ALL-FEMALE CAST, this is the perfect way to celebrate Women’s History Month!
